Country music singer Chely Wright and Lauren Blitzer tied the knot on Saturday.

The women announced in April plans to marry at Blitzer's aunt's home in Connecticut, one of six states where gay marriage is legal. (The women live in New York, but at the time of their announcement the state had yet to legalize such unions.)

Both wore Jose Dias-designed white gowns for their big day. Wright told that they opted out of including veils because “We like our hair too much!”

The couple served barbecue from New York's Blue Smoke restaurant to their roughly 200 guests.

Wright, 40, met her thirty-year-old future wife through her work as a board member of Faith in America, a non-profit that counters “the bigotry, prejudice and hostility toward the LGBT community being sold to the public for several decades under the guise of religious belief and religious teaching.” Blitzer is the group's development director.

“It's been a really exciting time,” Wright told E! Online. “We fit so well. And the best part is that our families go so beautifully together.”

“We want a family,” she added. “The benefit of being out is I get to have everything that everyone else has.”

Wright came out gay last year in her memoir Like Me.

Wish Me Away, a film documenting her coming out gay experience, premiered in April at the Nashville Film Festival. Wright has said that her decision to come out hurt her career.
